Clarks Desert Boots “Wolf”

by

We have officially found our favorite colorway of the Clark Desert Boot. The “Wolf” colorway sits between the sand and cola styles, is thus not too light and not too dark.

They are now available at Oi Polloi and they also give us the background story of the boot, that we had not heard before – “Rarely seen, ‘Wolf’ coloured version of the classic Clarks desert boot, created in 1950 by Nathan Clark who got the idea from crepe-soled, rough suede boots which officers in the Eighth Army were in the habit of getting made in the Bazaar at Cairo.” That’s the great thing with such classic styles – there is always a background story.
